Winemaker Notes

With its very original structure, Château Haut-Brion white is completely different from the other dry white wines of the Bordeaux area.

The unctuousness, the suavity and the apparent softness of the Sémillon are associated with the fruity freshness of the ripe Sauvignon.

First there is a scent of freshness dominated by aniseed and basswood. Then comes a whiff of little diluted verbena dissolving behind a soft trace of honeycomb. The finish is very complex: it mixes all those fragrances together, and then veils them with a touch of incense.

Next comes the palate where the tartness of the fruit is mitigated by the sweetness of the composition. Little by little one can taste the musk, that unctuous Muscat of the ripe Sauvignon.

One also finds the flavor of finely roasted, honey-coated almonds suggesting delicious praline. With age all these impressions combine and relate to those evoked by the aromas of a liquorous wine.

Thus Château Haut-Brion Blanc achieves the dream of the Larrieus: the aromatic fullness of a sauternes present in a dry white wine...

Chateau Larrivet Haut-Brion
Château Larrivet Haut-Brion was acquired by the Gervoson family in 1987. They restored the estate's unity, once again combining the Château, outbuildings, 13 hectares of grounds, and 42 hectares of vines under one owner, as well as replanting 18 hectares of land that had laid fallow.

A team of enthusiastic professionals has done a wonderful job of giving Château Larrivet Haut-Brion back its superb reputation, and the estate is once again universally recognised as one of the finest wines in the Pessac-Léognan appellation.

One of the world’s most popular and playful sparkling wines, Prosecco is a specialty of northeastern Italy, spanning nine provinces of the Veneto and Fruili-Venezia Giulia regions. A higher-quality version that must meet more stringent production requirements is known as Prosecco Superiore and must come from the town of either Valdobiaddene or Conegliano. Prosecco can be produced as a still wine, a semi-sparkling wine (“frizzante”), or a fully sparkling wine (“spumante”)—the latter being the most common. While it is typically produced in a “brut” (dry) style, its fresh and fruity character preserved by the tank method of carbonation often makes it seem a bit sweeter than it is in reality. “Extra brut” styles incorporating higher levels of residual sugar are quite popular, however.

Made from the Glera grape, which was formerly and confusingly called Prosecco, these wines are notable for pleasant flavors of peach, pear, melon, green apple, and honeysuckle. Lower pressure during the carbonation process means that the bubbles are lighter and frothier than in Champagne or other traditional method sparkling wine, and less persistent. Prosecco is also a great choice to blend with orange juice for mimosas for a classic brunch beverage.
